- ABOUT THE SPOT
Skydiving in Homestead General Airport, Miami, Florida USA
Apart from the fact that the city is a must for water sports as it provides easy access to endless sandy beaches with sparkling waters, Miami also hosts amazing recreational sports centers and outdoor parks within the city. Miami offers a wide variety of fun activities and skydiving is definitely one of them.
Located just a few miles away from the main city, Homestad is situated between the Everglades National Park and Biscayne National Park. This is a perfect location for skydiving because as you take off with a Cessna Caravan airplane from the General Airport, you fly above impressive landscapes and a network of forests and wet lands.
The drop off height is at 13500 ft/4114 m above the ground level and free falling reaches a speed of up to 180 mph/290 kph for more than 60 seconds. That gives you the opportunity to make controlled turns and speed flying and fire up the sky! Once you pull the ripcord, you can enjoy a wonderful parachute flight with some amazing views until you land safely on the ground.
Suitable for those who wish to make their first tandem jump as well as those who are experienced or wish to take lessons, the facilities provided on the spot, the skydive instructors and the equipment used are all licensed and approved by FAA. So do not hesitate, organize a skydiving adventure above the clouds and feel the rush and adrenaline of free falling.
